HBO is developing a drama about an abortion provider in Wichita, Kansas, based, it seems, on the late Dr. George Tiller, who was murdered by anti-abortion extremist Scott Roeder in 2009. Tiller was one of the last doctors in the U.S. who provided late-term abortions and therefore was constantly terrorized by so-called “pro-lifers.” Alan Ball of “True Blood” will be developing “Wichita” with journalist Devin Friedman, who penned a 2010 article in GQ magazine about Tiller’s murder.

It’s a good thing Amelia is not working from The Frisky’s office today. The amount of panty-creaming [Eww. -- Editor] that would result from her reading this article about Ryan Gosling in the UK’s Independent would’ve force us to call the custodian. How cute is this?

I know I am gonna get rotten tomatoes thrown at me for saying this, but I actually wanted braces when I was younger. Although I am technically gap-toothed, I wasn’t gap-toothed enough to justify a wire grill.

[This photo is officially the 8th thing I like about GP. Previously, there were only 7. -- Editor] Click through to see some celebrities with brace faces. Warning: you may have a sudden urge to go to the orthodontist — or maybe you’d rather embrace that snaggle tooth. [Huffington Post]
Does this only apply to me, or is Zach Galifianakis the dream man of nerd girls everywhere? The voice of Humpty Dumpty (yes!) in the impending update of Puss in Boots emerges from a desk, tells a few jokes, gives Conan some talk show-hosting advice (Zach is the host of “Between Two Ferns,” the most brilliant talk show ever), asks to go to the bathroom, and never returns. I’m in love. [Team Coco]
Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison appeared on “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers” yesterday — and let’s just take a moment to acknowledge how far Dr. Drew has fallen by having these two on a show called “Lifechangers” as I’m pretty sure the only life they’ve changed is mine – to discuss “The Pumpkin Patch Fiasco.” For the record, though the moms were complaining and eventually got Daisy Duke-clad Courtney booted because of “the kids” (nice air quotes, Court!), “The dads loved it!” Oh, I’m sure.
